The Rotary Club of Downtown Sioux Falls was founded in the City of Sioux Falls in 1915. In celebration of its Centennial in 2015, leadership created the Centennial Fund, challenging the members to raise $100,000 annually to have a greater impact in the community. In its first two years, the Centennial Fund has contributed over $60,000 to the Rotary Foundation with the remainder going to several selected organizations and projects in the Sioux Falls community.
    One of those projects is Rotary Centennial Plaza in the heart of Downtown Sioux Falls, creating in Phase 1, a permanent public space that will highlight the important contributions of Rotary to the city of Sioux Falls and around the world. Future phases will visually display the pillars of Rotary. To date over $50,000, cash and in-kind resources, have been contributed to the project. When completed, the project could cost over $150,000, leaving a Rotary legacy and acknowledge the people we serve.
    On August 15th, 2017, a groundbreaking ceremony was held with Past President Joel Dykstra as emcee and lead visionary for the project.
